Is this too much for 1 day?

We are arriving in just a few days and have been working on a tentative (but flexible) schedule in order to not miss anything, but still give us some down time on the beach. Our kids are 7 and 16. There are many things we plan to see, but don't want to feel rushed either.

We found some combo tickets for Pirate Museum & Colonial Quarter online. Would it be too much to do the Pirate Museum, Colonial Quarter and Castillo De San Marcos all on a Sunday? We just thought since they were all close to each other, maybe we could knock them out in a day. Thoughts....

That should work out just fine. You can spend as much or as little as you want. Have fun!

Allow about 90 minutes for each, maybe an hour for the pirate museum, depends on how interested you are in pirates! Castillo cannon firings at 1030 1130 130 230 and 330 (lightning in the area will cancel a cannon firing). I would advise castillo first, then colonial quarter then pirate museum, on account of the heat.

Thank you both for the replies!

capnconrad---thanks for the suggestion of what order to see everything too. Hadn't thought about the heat factor. We love pirates, we even dress up and go to pirate fests when we can. Heck, we even dress up for Halloween in our pirate attire to hand out treats. LOL

10. Re: Is this too much for 1 day?

I finally finished my reviews today, but they are not up yet as it usually takes Trip Advisor a few days to get them live.

We enjoyed our trip every much and appreciate all the help we got from this site. We didn't get everywhere we had hoped, but we do plan to return next year for one of the pirate events, probably the one in November. :-)

Thank you again to everyone for answering my many, many questions!
